6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the last century, Britain's Special Forces have performed a whole host of operations with unequalled skill, secrecy and bravery. From the Cockleshell Heroes' daring 1942 raid deep into Nazi-occupied Europe, to the dangerous sorties into enemy territory during the Gulf wars. It takes a truly special sort of courage to go undercover behind enemy lines, or to be part of a small, elite unit in a hit-and-run raid against a far larger power. Michael Ashcroft set about assembling what is believed to be the largest private collection of British Special Forces medals in the world. Here he traces the origins of those teams as well as detailing the action-packed accounts behind over 40 medals, recognising the astonishing valour and ingenuity displayed by servicemen

Minority verdict : the Conservative Party, the voters, and the 2010 election by Michael A Ashcroft ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on his unique perspective as the man responsible for the party's target seats and polling, the 132-page book gives Lord Ashcroft's view of the Conservatives' progress since their third defeat in 2005, the reasons for the party's failure to win an overall majority in 2010, and David Cameron's decision to form a coalition with the Liberal Democrats. Minority Verdict follows Lord Ashcroft's influential analysis of the 2005 election campaign, Smell the Coffee: A wake-up call for the Conservative Party, which called for the party to modernise and re-engage with voters having come to be seen as untrustworthy and out of touch. Lord Ashcroft said: "There has been speculation as to my view of the Party's performance in the election, and of David Cameron's subsequent decision to forge a coalition with the Liberal Democrats. By putting an end to speculation, Minority Verdict sets the record straight. This is a record of what I really thought at the time, and what I think now. And if there is to be a public debate about this subject, Minority Verdict represents my first and only contribution to it. I do not intend to comment beyond what is contained within its pages."
